Yesterday afternoon, on her way back from Barasat, Mamata Banerjee, Hon'ble Chief Minister, spent some time in Eco Park. She did her brisk evening walk, discussed for a while, and left after reminding that all work must be completed by December 2013.

Urban Development Department, in their notification number 3377-SL(AL)4S-9/2004 dated 2.9.2013 has brought out a clarification. It relates to payment of fees for getting transfer permission for leasehold residential plots in Salt Lake. Its explanation runs as follows:
"...Explanation: It is however, made clear that all devolutions, except in favour of close blood relations...shall be deemed to be transfer and transfer fees will be applicable. "
This will plug a loophole in respect of revenue receipts of the government.
